The course is set on a gentle slope with 9 holes and greens in perfect conditions. The surrounding palm trees, pines and orange trees will make you feel in the middle of nature. Don’t be put off by the fact that there are only 9 holes, because on the second round people can play from different positions and places, which in effect, makes it just like an 18 hole course. The course facilities include a practice green with 14 golf mats, 10 of which are covered, and these are the perfect place to practice your technique. The course also has a Social Club facing the river estuary boasting various species of koi carp and terrapins, along with a restaurant, café and Junior Golf School where kids can learn to play golf with the help of some of the best golf professionals around.
Club Golf Ifach
Another great golf course is Club de Golf Ifach, which is 20 minutes from your home and is a 9 hole courses (with six par 3 and three par 4), equipped with a practice area with 4 cabins, approach area with bunkers and a putting green. It’s a peaceful relaxed place with views of the Peñón de Ifach where you can while away the time practising your favourite sport. Later, you can have a drink in the café or enjoy the varied menu on offer at the restaurant. Not only that, but the club’s facilities are available to members and visitors including the swimming pool and tennis court, and you can hold events and celebrations there.
La Sella Golf Club
Continuing with our list of courses, we come to La Sella Golf Club, in Denia. Set by the sea, and protected by the Montgó mountain, this club will make your swings a different experience with its 9 holes spread over three greens each with a different story and its own special features, as you will discover if you check out their website; not to mention their restaurant El Hoyo 19, with its great selection of traditional rice dishes, sandwiches and other delicious things to eat. And why not finish off a great day on the course by treating yourself to the spa circuit?
Altea Club de Golf
We have yet another recommendation, and that’s the Altea Club de Golf, which is the Sierra de Bernia. This is a par 72 course where you can play 9 to 18 holes, providing a real challenge for golfers of every calibre. The club also provides facilities for members and visitors that include 2 petanque courts where players can use their own bowls or rent them at the restaurant, and you can even join a club that plays every Sunday morning.
And last but not least, you can also practise your best swing surrounded by countryside but with the Benidorm skyline on the horizon at Villaitana Golf, with its 2 golf courses designed by Nicklaus Design: the Poniente with its par 62 course 3,858 metres in length and with views of both sea and mountains, a shorter yet challenging course surrounded by a harmonious backdrop of trees, plants and streams, and the Levante, a par 72 course designed in the American style with wide paths and over 6,576 metres in length.

Costa Blanca is much more than its paradisical beaches. In this article, we’ll tell you about some activities you can enjoy in nature around Cumbre del Sol. This time, the plans are on dry land: horse-riding, golf, and various spectacular hiking routes for all levels.
Horse-riding in Cumbre del Sol
Riding a horse increases your balance and improves your posture. And if that wasn’t enough, it also increases muscle tone throughout the body and is good for your mental health. And to top it all off, riding the trails of Cumbre del Sol and enjoying the natural scenery turns into a unique experience. Whether you are an experienced rider or have never seen a horse up close, the Cañada del Sol Equestrian Centre offers you everything you are looking for. Lessons, booking guided excursions in different areas and for all levels. It is also a recovery centre and has a restaurant with a daily menu for a great day out.
Golf courses with captivating views
Golfing in Costa Blanca North is one of the unique experiences of living in Cumbre del Sol. With excellent temperatures all year round, golfing conditions are optimal 365 days a year. Playing golf whilst enjoying the outdoors and good weather is a luxury that only a few special places can boast.
A few minutes away from Cumbre del Sol, you can visit different courses and play your favourite sport. The Golf Club in Javea is a definite one to visit if you don’t want to travel too far and enjoy very well looked after courses. The Ifach Golf Club near Teulada-Moraira is a certainly impressive course. Given its location, you can enjoy amazing views of the Mediterranean and the Peñón de Ifach whilst teeing off surrounded by pine trees. Another two very interesting options for golfing around Residential Cumbre del Sol are La Sella and Golf Club Altea. La Sella (near Montgo natural park) with numerous clubs, was designed by José María Olazábal and has 27 holes. Golf Club Altea is another place to enjoy golf and has a 40 year long history.
Captivating hiking routes
Living in Cumbre del Sol means embracing nature and feeling surrounded by it. Not only for its incredible views of the sea, beaches and coves of the Mediterranean. But also for its extensive green areas and the number of natural parks in the area. One of the best known is the Granadella Natural Park. Thanks to this, the Costa Blanca coastline offers a wide range of spectacular hiking routes.
One of the best known hiking routes is probably the cliff paths. Along the coast of Benitachell there are spectacular geographic features in the form of cliffs. Some of them are even more than 100 metres above sea level. This route separates Cala del Moraig cove from Cala Llebeig cove. It is 4 kilometres long and is quite a pleasant walk due to its low-medium difficulty.
Montgo is one of the best natural parks in the area. There are many different hiking routes to do throughout. We recommend you do the classic route which runs through almost the entire park, it’s not very demanding in terms of slopes and terrain, but it will take you about 6 hours, as it covers about 16 kilometres. Within the natural park there are other interesting routes such as the Cova Tallada and Torre del Gerro.
The Abiar-Calistros route runs around the town of Benitachell and starts right in its town centre. This route focuses more on visiting key points in the town. Some of them being the Plaza de la Iglesia and the Portalet. It also takes you to the camí de la Torreta and the old system of natural wells.
Although this article was supposed to be dedicated to activities on dry land, we think we can make a small exception. We recommend the underwater route to discover the Moraig Cave. Above all, for diving lovers, it is a very interesting dive due to the special geological conditions of the place.
Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol offers a wide and varied range of plans, all falling underneath the same umbrella. Essentially, enjoying nature, the Mediterranean climate and an exclusive area such as the Costa Blanca North. We are talking about exclusivity in every sense of the word.
